Recovery in the Community
One of the biggest challenges to a person’s recovery, is staying motivated and clean while living in the same situation where they were previously using or where sourcing their drug of choice is easy. This is especially true of alcohol.
The aim of Transition Housing is to provide a temporary place for that person to live which is not only a living space in a different setting but also provides support and companionship.
Transition Housing essentially provides a place to stay, a stepping stone, between getting free of an addiction and integrating back into society. A typical stay in a Transition Home will be 3 to 6 months during which time the individual will engage with the Root’s team to create and execute on a continuing Recovery Plan.
Transition Housing will take one of two models...
Roots has access to, and has used, assisted living properties in Newton Aycliffe, Stockton and Billingham. These properties are administered by a Christian run charity based in the North East
Temporary and Permanent Housing
This work will be purely through agencies and the council where Roots’ role will be that of mentor/advocate only.
